Rescue Dog Pooping and Peeing Indoors

We rescued a dog in the beginning of September and the minute we brought her home she had diarrhea all over our room's carpet! Now 2 months later we are still having accidents in the house. The accidents happen often; then she's really good about going outside. However, then it starts happening inside repeatedly again! We know she was used for breeding and had 1 litter. Then issues caused her to be neutered and the owners left her at the vet. We love her, but can't continue to live like this, it's so gross! Please help.

This is so sad and many breeders don't treat their female dog good. They are normally locked in cages and never taken out for walks or even trained to pee and poop outside.

  1. Unfortunately, you will need to confine her in a smaller space and not give her too much freedom in your home right now.
  2. If she is a small dog a child's playpen works great. You'll need to line the bottom of the playpen with some plastic to protect your floor and cover this with a towel or blanket. You'll also need to add some puppy pads or newspaper to the area for her to pee and poop on.
  3. Every hour on the hour you need to remove the dog and take it outside for a walk. At this time make sure the dog is peeing and pooping on your walks. They might not always poop, but they should pee.
  4. Ad

  5. Half an hour after feeing the dog she needs to go out for a walk and poop. Furthermore, when the dog wakes up from a nap, in the morning, and before going down in the evening it has to go out immediately to pee and poop.
  6. You can allow the dog in the house with you when you're home and you can watch the dog. If you see the dog move around or leave the area you are in, immediately take the dog outside, they are looking for a place to pee or poop.
  7. This is going to take time. I am not one to put a dog in a crate and lock it away. This poor dog was in a cage and I'm afraid it isn't a good idea to put her in a crate. I have used the playpen method on the small puppies I had and this seemed to work the best for me.
  8. It will take time and it is hard. They will have accidents and when they do they need to go back in the playpen and you can't spank them or get angry with them.
